So What Is a Southwest Philly Floater


Until Sunday  evening the best definition of a Southwest Philly Floater might have been comedian Chip Chantry’s. But when La Salle’s Tyrone Garland teardropped in his game-winning shot against Ole Miss and propelled his school into the Sweet Sixteen, a name was coined. And at least a couple of locals have already named sandwiches after the winning basket.

At Lil Dan’s food truck, the Southwest Philly Floater is a sour cream and onion chicken wrap. Down on West Passyunk Avenue, La Salle alum and owner of the recently opened Cousin’s Grubhouse, Jim Lord has given a breakfast sandwich of scrapple, pork roll and egg the Southwest Philly Floater monicker.

We’re still waiting for Southwest Philly Floater, the cocktail.

UPDATE: We’ve got cocktails.
